I am 33 years old with cystic fibrosis. CF has slowly destroyed my lungs and now I only have about 32% lung capacity. Many everyday tasks that most people take for granted are now very difficult for me because I just can't breathe. Everything from taking a shower to walking to the mail box leaves me short of breath. On the really bad days I require supplimental oxygen.
The testing, surgery, medications, post operative care, physical rehabilitation, and the care I will require to keep me alive long enough to get new lungs are incredibly expensive. One or both of my parents will need to relocate in order to care for me full time after the surgery but their bills still need to be paid. Your donations will help cover all of those costs. Unfortunately my medical insurance won't come close to paying for all of it.
Any help that you are able to give is greatly appreciated and I thank you from the bottom of my heart (and lungs!). To learn more about cystic fibrosis please visit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Please consider becoming an organ and tissue donor.
